Ladies and gentlemen: we are extremely proud to officially announce MoSynth's newest member, Jon Packard! Jon is our new "provider of low notes," and it truly is an experience to see him masterfully play the bass like a total badass. Thank you, Jon, and welcome to the MoSynth gang!
Jon has been playing music professionally his entire adult life. Music has carried him all around the world, and he is so grateful for the opportunity to continue that journey in MoSynth. He is that rare breed of musician who is both a skilled craftsman and a passionate artist. Jon is fluid in many styles from jazz, salsa, rock, reggae, ska, funk, and country, but is also totally engaged and committed to the project at hand. Part of Jon's mantra is that he, "greatly enjoys the challenge of getting into character in any musical environment." Jon also plays in the local rock/reggae band "Quartus," leads the Omaha based band "The Six," plays in "High Heel" and "Black Market Moonshine" and has been seen on stages around the world with Toni Tennille, Ellis Marsallis, Tom Schumman, Chuck Findley, Gordon Goodwin, Atlanta singer/songwriter Karsten Durand, Nashville legend Ray Scott and Omaha, Nebraska's own Jimmy Weber. He proudly uses Roscoe basses and DR Strings and Aguilar amplification. Before landing in Omaha, Jon most recently lived in Tokyo, Japan and is also a proud veteran of our U.S. Armed Forces. His interests are not limited to music, Jon is an avid photographer, a long time practitioner of Yoga, and loves cooking.
